Susanne Posel (OC) : Researchers from the New York University (NYU) Langone Medical Center (LMC) have discovered that diisononyl phthalate (DINP) and diisodecyl phthalate (DIDP), found in plastic wrap and other products, can increase blood pressure in children and teenagers.

Data from 1,329 children and teenagers ages 8 to 19 on blood pressure levels taken from urine samples yielded a 10 fold increase in the detection of DINP and DIDP correlating with biological disruption.


DINP and DIDP belong to a group of chemicals known as phthalates and used in consumer products as a “safer” replacement for identified detrimental chemicals.

These chemicals can be found in plastic wrap, soap, cosmetics and food containers and were shown by researchers to contribute to insulin resistance, metabolic disorders and hypertension.

It simply takes a 1% increase of DINP and DIDP to cause these adverse effects.

Leonardo Trasande, associate professor of pediatrics and environmental medicine, said that this study “adds to growing concerns that environmental chemicals might be independent contributors to insulin resistance, elevated blood pressure and other metabolic disorders.”

DINP and DIDP are derived from DEHP, a plasticizer that was banned in Europe during 2004; however the chemical is allowed. Corporate manufacturers of plastic have been on a voluntary basis replacing DEHP with DINP and DIDP.

Trasande explained: “Alternatives to DIDP and DINP include wax paper and aluminum wrap; indeed, a dietary intervention that introduced fresh foods that were not canned or packaged in plastic reduced phthalate metabolites substantially. Our study adds further concern for the need to test chemicals for toxicity prior to their broad and widespread use, which is not required under current federal law (the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act).”

The researchers suggest that mitigation of exposure to DINP and DIDP should be enacted such as:

• Not microwaving food in plastic containers
• Do not use plastic wrap
• Wash plastic containers by hand instead of using a dishwasher
• Avoid plastic containers with the numbers 3, 6 or 7 inside the recycle symbol

A previous study from the Karlstad University showed phthalates to be no safer and poses serious health risks to male fetuses reproductive abilities while in the womb.

The study concludes: “These findings call into question the safety of substituting DINP for DEHP in soft PVC, particularly since a shorter male AGD has been shown to relate to male genital birth defects in children and impaired reproductive function in adult males and the fact that human levels of DiNP are increasing globally.”

DEHP is used in numerous products such as:

• Vinyl toys
• Flooring
• Packaging
• Cosmetics
• Electrical cables
• Auto parts
• shoes

Carl-Gustaf Bronehag, lead researcher for this study commented: “Our data suggest that this substitute phthalate may not be safer than the chemical it is replacing.”

In 2012, a study conducted on fetuses and phthalates showed that “prenatal exposure” to the chemical “affects reproductive development in human males.”

In 2013, a study looking at phthalates showed that “human exposure to phthalates is a public health concern, and the system most vulnerable to its potential effects seems to be the immature male reproductive tract.”

The American Chemistry Council (ACC) denies that DiNP “has effects on people’s hormonal activity” because the study used “dose levels that are over 100,000 times higher than typical human exposures” would dictate.
